Re: CHIKARA - Season 11 Discussion Thread
Zelda the Great was my first CHIKARA show and I am in love. Such a well-run promotion, really makes you feel at home. The only names I knew on this card were Cabana, Quack, Young Bucks, Generico, FIST, The Colony, Akuma, Sugar and Bryce. (Yes, Bryce counts to me. Why wouldn't he?) I didn't know what the stories were or who was going to win or who was good or bad. I was ignorant to much of it, and that really helped my enjoyment. Right out of the box I met Gavin Loudspeaker, who took and never gave back the seat next to me. And holy crap, is the Logan Square Auditorium a terrific venue for wrestling. Should look fancy on camera.
This was such a fun show. The Colt/Quack match was a little brief but very, very good. The four corners elimination tag match was, in a word, outrageous. RIP Sapphire. The Stranger will never be the same. I dug the main event, too, because the crowd was still nuclear toward the Bucks, even past 11pm C/T. Fantastic atmosphere, just marvelous seeing all this up close, taking it in. I'm a fan for life after this.
